Federal government faces scrutiny over bus-safety standards after Ottawa crash

Those recommendations sprang from the TSB’s investigation into another Ottawa bus crash in 2013, in which a city bus broke through a warning gate at a rail crossing and hit a moving passenger train, killing six people on the bus.

Fox said Transport Canada had done some work on the recommendations but that “significant progress has not yet occurred and the safety deficiencies remain outstanding.”

She added that Friday’s crash in Ottawa as well as last year’s collision involving the Humboldt junior hockey team all underscore the need for Transport Canada to take action on implementing crashworthiness standards for buses.
